This is a simple cane to make, but as is always the case with my favorites, there are lots of possible ways to interpret and use it.
If you keep the canes uniformly round while slicing, (which I didn’t) keep them all the same thickness (which I didn’t) AND lay them out on the backing sheet evenly (again, nope, not me) then you’ll end up with a hexagonal pattern after rolling them flat.
Personally I prefer the organic look. I’ve always been more a fan of impressionism then precise realism.
Like Monet. 🙂
